We add this great US brand to our stock of amps. Acoustic Image have been making tarnsparent amps for acoustic instruments for quite some years now and this are actually their 4th generation of amps and we are thrilled to see they are the best ever.
Small and lightweight are two words that come immediately to mind when you say Acoustic Image. That's one of the reasons why thousands of upright bass players in the world use them. It sounds just as good for upright or electric bass. In this new series of amps the preamps have been improved with even better sound, more features. Also there's more power from the amp section and the cabinets are far more efficient. To sum up: they are better than ever.
This is the Flex Preamp model and it features two really comprehensive channels: you get 4 band EQ, Phase reverse and adjustable low cut in both channels as well as FX send (24 bit Reverb and Delay with Level and Rate controls). There's also Mono and Stereo outputs for you to choose, individual FX loop for each channel, Mute, Limiter, etc. Both cannels offer 48Volt for condenser mics or external preamps.
Two channels allow you to use a pickup and a microphone at the same time. You can also use a piezo and a magnetic or use one channel for upright and the other for electric bass. The possibilities are endless..
Apart from sending the DI to yhe P.A., you can hook this preamp to any powered speaker (the Flex Cab being the best match, of course) or ise the Power Amp In in your amp or combo and get a great sound night after night.
We have to say we are really impressed by the quality of this product. Get one and we warrany you'l put a smile in your face when you use it.
